It’s hard to imagine a creation system where it is natural for healthy babies to die in their sleep.
It makes you question each religion, every set of beliefs. Maybe the science types are right–it’s all just dust and atoms, chaotic and non-linear.
But faith has its place, and we cling to it out of desire and need. Only through God do we dream of meeting our loved ones again, so loss becomes our salvation.
I tell this regularly to people dealing with unspeakable grief. We must strengthen our faith, not lose it. And Faith is key, especially right now.
My long-time friends’ daughter Cordelia Faith lived for three months and three weeks. We will miss her, most especially her parents and twin sister, all our lives.
Rest well, sweet Corey.
